One hundred and fifty-one Cryptococcus neoformans strains isolated from AIDS patients in Brazil and maintained in the Adolfo Lutz Institute (São Paulo, Brazil) were tested for phospholipase, protease and other extracellular enzymatic activities and their serotypes determined. Production of extracellular phospholipase and protease was tested by the agar plate methods. Determination of extracellular enzyme profile of the strains was performed by using the API-ZYM kit system, which can test 19… CONTINUE READING
